The CyberCommander's Handbook


January 12, 2012



Important Notice

This Handbook covers the full scope of a ALV 1 CyberTank. The Handbook presents everything there is to know about the vehicle, its systems, and its safe operation.


General

The reader must make individual judgments concerning the importance and applicability of any information in the Handbook within the AI Command environment.

All procedures, safety practices, time limits, vehicle limits and maintenance requirements contained in this Handbook are considered mandatory for the continued safe operation of the vehicle in a condition equal to its original manufacture.

The CyberCommander is required to report any deviation from the limits specified in this Handbook as well as all corrective maintenance action required to the Facility Chief in the  manner specified.

Nothing in this document is meant to contradict the laws, statutes, ordinances or regulations of local, state or federal jurisdictions.

Nothing in this document is meant to contradict common sense: AI Command is a game!



Use of the Handbook

The CyberCommander's Handbook is designed to facilitate maintaining documents necessary for the safe and efficient operation of the CAV 1 GC CyberTank¦ within the parameters of the game AI Command.

Revising the Handbook
The Log of Revisions pages are used for maintaining a listing of all the effective pages in the Handbook and as a record of revisions to these pages. The data on the Log of Revisions pages is contained within self explanatory sections to reflect who made the changes and when they were made.

WARNING

When this Handbook is used for CyberTank operational purposes, it is the CyberCommander's responsibility to maintain it in a current status. Operation of any CyberTank without a Handbook containing current revisions is unsafe and a major violation of game rules.

Ventilation
Ventilation is accomplished by holding the canopy open with an old broomstick.

Cooling
When the cabin needs cooling we open the canopy in the same way we do for ventilation.

Heating
Heating is accomplished by the warming of the cabin interior by the engine.

Neural Nets
Neural Nets are plasmic charges of negative ions which are projected from the Neural Tubes which are mounted on the left and right sides of the turret. The ions spread into a large net as they fall toward the ground. The ions will render all robots, androids, and cyborgs immobile for a minimum of 5 seconds. Neural net aiming parameters require the computation of distance, trajectory, intervening emf sources, and estimated p source size.
